Both teams win against UPenn and Princeton
The Harvard squash teams played their first matches of the year this past weekend and brought home critical wins against both UPenn and Princeton.
After losing against Dartmouth in December, our men’s team bounced back and beat UPenn 6-3 before winning against Princeton 9-0. Our women recorded the same scores against both teams. The women’s win against UPenn was particularly significant as UPenn beat Harvard last season and won the Ivy title.
